Question about Apple iPod MP3 Player
I have a fifth generation Apple ipod 30GB. I have never had problems with it before, but now all of a sudden it won't charge. I have tried letting the battery completely die and then charging it, but that didn't work. Apple's support site said that it may be the cable I was using may have been faulty so I used a friend's and that didn't work either. It says it is charging, but if I let it "charge" for hours on end and check on it, I find that it hasn't charged a bit. Please help!
Try geting your hands on a ipod usb wall charger, this will charge it directly on to a wall

Tips for a great answer:
The iPod A1136 is the fifth generation iPod from Apple that uses a click wheel to scroll through your device's media library, and may occasionally lock up when you attempt to play a song or display a photo.
This error error occurs when the hard disk is unable to access the information and stalls while opening a file.
A reset of the device usually corrects the problem, as it clears the device's memory and any errors.
Check your iPod's buttons to determine if the cause is due to a hardware error before resetting the device, as the problem may be due to the iPod's hold switch.
Slide the hold switch at the top of the iPod to the right, and slide it back to the left to ensure the switch is in the off position.
Hold down the center button in the click wheel, and at the same time hold down "Menu" on the click wheel.
Continue to hold the iPod's buttons until the device's screen shuts off, turns back on and shows the Apple logo.
Plug the iPod's connector cable into the dock connector on the bottom of the iPod.
Plug the other end of the cable into your computer's USB or FireWire port to charge the iPod.
Wait at least two hours for the iPod to charge. Launch iTunes on the computer, and click "Controls" of the iTunes menu.
Click "Eject iPod" in the sub-menu to disconnect the device.
The iPod takes four hours to completely charge its battery.
hope this helps
